Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Magnolia Rustica Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)



Welcome to the May Paint-A-Flower Magnolia Rustica Rubra hop! You are here via Linda Westfall.

If you need to return to the start of the hop, you can head back to the Altenew Card Blog.


I think this is my favorite Paint-A-Flower release to date! I colored the stamp with Artist Markers and added "sparkle" with a white gel pen.

This is an easy image to fussy cut and after doing so I adhered it a background that I previously created with Persian Blue and Ultraviolet Water Color Brush Markers on watercolor paper and then foiled with the Chevron Hot Foil Plate. The sentiment is heat embossed with Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder.

Giveaway Prizes:

$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 05/28/2022 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 05/30/2022.


Thank you so much for hopping by!

Your next stop is Preeti Chandran!

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Florescence Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

 


Hello and welcome here from your previous stop on the hop, Ann Taylor

You can return to the beginning of the hop if needed at the Altenew Blog and click the following link to go directly to the Altenew shop and pick up this new kit!


I heat embossed the stamp with Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder on the opposite corners of an A2 vellum. Then I ran it through the embossing folder, adding Frosty Pink to the embossing, coating with Crystal Clear Embossing Power and heat setting. I've framed a heat embossed sentiment from the set with black cardstock and Gold Mirror cardstock frames cut with the Fine Frames Cover Die.


After embossing white card stock I "loosely" inked the raised areas with the mixed media ink and a Mini Blending brush.


I'm loving black spatters lately so I added some here with a Jet Black Watercolor Brush Marker.


The Simple Coloring Stencil included in this kit makes it super easy to color this fun image! 

After stamping both images with Jet Black Crisp dye ink I used Sunkissed, Orange Cream, Grass Field and Shadow Creek Crisp Dye Inks to color the images with the stencil.


I die cut white card stock with the Doodled Dots Cover Die, layered that over black cardstock and adhered the florals in the top left corner. Sentiment is heat embossed with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and adhered with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.



I've basically created the same layout for this card but in landscape orientation with the second corner of blooms in the kit. This time I've die cut white cardstock with the Ornate Cover Die and stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and also adhered with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

Giveaway Prizes

$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $ 25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 05/18/2022 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 05/20/2022.
